  The Rhythm of Geysers is a poem to the earth. 
This work brings to the foreground the musical diversity
of the geothermal site. The visitor’s participation is needed for the evolution of the display of the work. By participating the user creates his/hers personal experience of the visual and sound composition of the geysers. The experience of the one participating is similar to playing an instrument or rather
beeing a conductor of different musicians playing
different instruments.

The different geysers are the musical instruments of this work
and the musical harmony are created by the different rhythm
and pitches reached at different stages of an eruption.
